Can the poetry and the novel testify and represent the occurrence of the story? What is the difference between the historical narrative and literary writing? In this paper the author proposes a reflection on the relationship between poetic invention and history with an emphasis on how the historian and the poet stand out on how to construct the narrative. If the concern of the historical narrative is the bond between the veracity of the sources and interpretation of facts, poetic language in the representation of events involves a metamorphosis, which aims to give visibility to what is alien and invisible to the historical mean. The poem is thus a necessary step for the understanding of the events, as reveals the aspects of groundwater, this inner time, that the historical narrative is unable to represent.
